Project Blowed is an open-mic workshop, its affiliated underground hip hop crew and record label based in Los Angeles, California.[2]

History[edit]

The roots of Project Blowed can be traced back to the Good Life Cafe, a Health Food Center in South Central Los Angeles, California.[3] It was described by UGSMAG as "a platform for rappers to perform their material" and "a testing ground for Los Angeles' independent rap scene".[4] Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, and Lenny Kravitz reportedly attended the open-mic.[3]

In 1994, Aceyalone and Abstract Rude produced the original Project Blowed compilation album.[5] In 2005, Project Blowed released a follow up album, Project Blowed: 10th Anniversary, on Decon.[6]

Expansion[edit]

With the expansion of the Blowdian roster to include newer groups such as Customer Service and Swim Team, Project Blowed has since opened an additional workshop in California's Inland Empire to accompany its primary location in Leimert Park, Los Angeles.[7]
